I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If it's brand New, I'd call Dell and explain to them what the problem is.  If not a quick easy fix then send it back for an exchange.  Dell's Policy is an exchange can be done within 30 days of manufacture.  If any problem exist don't want to get caught with a lemon when the opportunity is available to resolve everything now.

Hope this Helps!!!
